Workshop Description
This is a one day 3-hour workshop that teaches you to overcome the difficulties associated with Macro Photography. We will start in the classroom for 1 hour to discuss your approach to close-up photography. Here you will learn camera techniques to produce stunning macro images of the most delicate and precious elements of flowers, insects and water droplets.  You will also understand how to produce beautiful lighting and prepare for any scenario imaginable in the world of miniature.

We will then take a step outside where we will have a beautiful variety of plants, flowers and even a few fun little insects to photograph. After watching a short demonstration of the techniques you will be performing, you will each be able to rotate stations to give you exposure to the different challenges we have provided you. Through hands-on shooting and new found knowledge you will see your pictures come to life. Topics discussed include macro equipment, lighting, positioning, metering and many other small particulars that can be easy to neglect but which make all of the difference in your macro photography experience.

Topics Covered:

  • depth of field
  • critical focusing
  • lenses & focal length
  • natural lighting & metering
  • using flash and reflectors
  • positioning your camera
  • water droplet reflections
  • hands-on photo shoot


  • Detailed notes provided in class and photography assignments
  • Direct correspondence with your instructor for questions and feedback.
